History ride on Iron Age chariot
TUESDAY Gold bullets and corkscrew jumps
THE fifth day at the Barbican Centre in York, featuring matches in the second round of the ranking event.
There are 16 matches scheduled to take place across the tables today, which will see the line- up for the third round confirmed.
Most of the seeded players progressed with ease at this stage last year, but Judd Trump and Stuart Bingham were two high- profile casualties.
Hazel Irvine presents. Snooker on a Sunday afternoon. Perfect post- roast entertainment. THE historian reveals a story of invasion in Britain spanning millennia, beginning with him felling a tree with a flint axe in Kent and riding an Iron Age chariot.
Sam Willis also searches for clues of invasion at Silsbury Hill and tracks down evidence of the Beaker people, who brought ceramics, metalwork and beakers to Britain.
Interesting enough, but Willis strikes me as a bit of a dick. DERMOT O’Leary introduces the climax of this year’s talent contest. The results of last night’s performance at Wembley Arena are in and one of the three finalists has been eliminated from the contest. The two remaining acts must give one final performance to impress the viewing public and the judges, before one is crowned this year’s winner.
Aaaaand, relax! It’s over for another year! JAMES Bond’s investigation into the death of a worldrenowned scientist working on solar technology draws him into a battle of wits with a stealthy assassin who dispatches his victims with a golden bullet and has the British secret agent next in his sights.
If you’re wondering, it’s the one with the car doing that corkscrew jump.
Spy adventure starring Roger Moore, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland and Maud Adams. FOOTAGE of animals that live on the coast, including sea lions working in packs to hunt tuna in the shallows and moray eels that venture out of the water to seek out food on dry rocks.
Puffins must brave predators to bring a mouthful of food back to their young, and king penguins must avoid elephant seals and go without food for a month while they moult.
Plus, footage of the bizarre Leaping Blenny, a fish that hates the water.
Christ, this series is good!
